CHATSWORTH, Calif., Oct. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On Wednesday, October 10, men and women across the country will unite in style for the greater good while taking part in the Caring is Sexy Cut-A-Thon. More than 875 salons will participate in the haircut marathon organized by hair care manufacturer Sexy Hair in support of Look Good Feel Better, a nonprofit organization that helps hundreds of thousands of women who are undergoing cancer cope with the devastating appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment.
It is literally a day of cuts for a cause. Participating salons and stylists will offer reduced price haircuts in favor of a $10 charitable contribution to benefit the self-help beauty charity. With salons participating across all 50 states, patrons can easily find a salon nearest them for a haircut of their choosing all while supporting the fight against breast cancer. Sexy Hair will donate 100% of the proceeds from these appointments to Look Good Feel Better.
"Nearly everyone has had a loved one or friend touched by cancer and the effects of treatment, emotional and physical, are harrowing," said Karl Heinz Pitsch, President and CEO of Sexy Hair. "We are pleased that so many salons have agreed to 'pay it forward' on October 10th for a beautiful cause with the Cut-A-Thon initiative benefiting such an impactful organization."
Sexy Hair has been a partner of Look Good Feel Better since 2009 and has raised nearly a quarter of a million dollars for the cause. The launch of the first Caring is Sexy Cut-A-Thon is taking Sexy Hair's relationship with Look Good Feel Better and its dedication to the breast cancer battle to another level, spreading the brand's mission to share "sexy" confidence with others by feeling and doing good. In addition to the Cut-A-Thon, Sexy Hair will hold a series of yearlong promotional events in 2013 to benefit Look Good Feel Better.
